    Before doing that I'd suggest a FEC first.
    Try spraying them as I said and see if it helps

    My girl is the same way, itchy itchy tail. I come out to a grey butt from her rubbing it along the bars. Broken hairs at the top and mad frizzies.
    She has had fecal count and it UTD on everything necessary.
    Her tail is flakey towards the end and I have tried anywhere from a "good" conditioner to MTG and even coconut oil for moisturizing and it doesn't seem to help :-/
    What's the deal with the original Listerine and baby oil mix?? Seen it mentioned a few times but not clearly for what exactly.

    Use equal parts listerine, white vinegar, and water. It keeps the tail from itching, the skin moisturised, and the hair clean. Leave out the baby oil as is will only tract dirt and clog pores causing hair to fall out and break.

    I also use the to clean one of my mares udders because itching a tail doesn't just mean worms. If their udders or sheath itch they will scratch their tail s as a sign

    Thank you! I wasn't too fond of the idea of baby oil, never been a fan of it for anything else.
    I will try that mixture though, seems vinegar is good for almost everything in select amounts.

    i have a mare exactly like this. I stand my ground and at a decent angle if she so much as swishes her tail at me I will give her a slight tap with a dressage whip if she kicks she gets alot more than a slight tap. This quickly put an end to kicking at me while doing this. She really really kicked to. Not just threats.

    Oh my mare is the witch of all witchy mares. I boyfriend was listening to her stomach today more towards her rear an she turns around and bites him in the back of the leg. I didn't catch it quick enough to correct her but then I took the end of the pitch fork and started rubbing her tummy, then teets...etc. my mare cow kicks and its in a split second. So either way I've got it coming from both ends lol

    Oh believe me I understand. My mare is but 4 1/2 yo and she is very temper mental with other people but me. I don't tolerate it. All my husband has to do is look at her and she pins ears starts wrinkling her nose and threatening kicks. I have to put a sign up on her stall when we go camping so people don't mess with her. If you are the primary one handling her put her in her place. Their udders get nasty and can really bother them. My mare is also very flexible. She can cow kick and strike somebody with her hind feet even if they are close to her shoulder. But once again take a dressage whip and as soon as she shows signs deliver a punishment
